A Celebration of Fruit
When you haven't got a minute to spare, this dessert will make you look like a genius. My friend Vicki says she clipped it from a Mark Bittman column.
2 pounds mixed dried fruit (pitted prunes, apricots, peaches, pears, cranberries, cherries, white raisins -- your call)
l tablespoon of rose or orange blossom water (optional)
Put all the dried fruit in a bowl and cover with tepid water. Let sit for at least 24 hours covered -- 48 hours is even better.
Stir in rose or orange blossom water
Serve with crème fraîche or yogurt sweetened with not too much brown sugar.
